The following description is based upon a single fully engorged female collected under a stone at Kamieskroon, Little Namaqualand, by Dr R. F. Lawrence in October 1930. Dr Lawrence informs me that rock-rabbits were probably the commonest animals about the hill where he found it, but the host of the tick may be a bird.
